This restaurant has seen quite a few reincarnations over the years -- the recent one seems finally to have settled on a formula that works. The menu is small and retains a focus on Flammkuchen and other local favourites which are well prepared and tasty, if not particularly memorable. As others have stated, it's the location that counts -- great... More

The restaurant is in a very pretty location, with some partial views over Freiburg, along with some beautiful old trees. Unfortunately the food is about 80% as good as you might hope and the service can be VERY slow. We ordered an item from the specials of the day and about 20 minutes later were told it was not available,... More

A great place where everything is made with so much love. To start I would like to mention the location. The best location to feel what is Freiburg. A great view of whole Freiburg in the middle of the trees and the green of Lorettoberg. The Terasse is awesome. Inside is much wood with high ceilings and great candle light.... More

Used to love this place, great memories for extensive breakfast buffets. Now, the location is still HIP - and that is what you pay for. As the name states, old Freiburg castle with very limited views. You really pay for the location mostly not for the food delivered or service - nothing special, quite boring. Since I have known it...

The outside is not pretty and it has a genuine UK (except for citizens of Kingston upon Hull) red elephone box - no windows or phone! It is located in a residential area on the southern edge of the town and clearly caters for locals. Inside it is very atmospheric and if it hadn't been raining dining out on the... More

My family (Hubby, our 9 year old son and myself) had a late lunch at this restaurant while visiting Freiburg. The grounds were very peaceful was pleasant and the food was quite tasty. We were a little nervous as none of us are remotely fluent with our German, but our server was more than patient and very helpful despite the... More

I've been to Schlosscafe four times this summer. In fact, I lived right next to it, and I enjoyed the atmosphere. I also kept going hoping for better food next time. But no: the biggest delusion was the apple strudel. Advertised as the special for the week, it was a small slice from an industrial frozen apple strudel with some... More

Located on top of the Lorettaberg a nice walk from downtown Freiburg is this restaurant. It's a very historic location. A castle, and a French fort topped this hill. Kings overlooked battlefields from here and now you can a have here a wonderful breakfast on Sunday morning. We took a table inside because it looked like rain. Outside there is... More
